Hayden Catholic High School is sad to report that Mr. Don Laird (Class of 1958) passed away on Tuesday, October 14. After attending St. Thomas Seminary, Mr. Laird returned to Hayden Catholic as an instructor in 1970 and taught until his retirement in 2005. At the time of his retirement, Hayden Catholic students commissioned the prayer garden at the front flagpole in recognition of his service as a teacher. Although he also taught Social Studies, he was best known as a teacher of Theology and served as the Department Chair. Mr. Laird was Hayden Catholic’s first swim coach and is remembered for providing the invocation at varsity football games for decades, including after his retirement. Mr. Laird had returned last Friday night at our Homecoming game to provide the invocation prior to kick-off.
May he rest in peace!
